Everything Lyrics

Everything - Murs

1 2

 

She was only 15 in love with bad R 'n' B

She had to have vision 'cause she saw the star in me

Encouraged me to write about the drama in my life

To most that seems strange like something wasn't right

I used to fall a victim to the lunchroom comedians

Somethin' like a outcast

Started smokin' w**d and then

 

I sorta fell into my own

Kind of felt at home when behind the microphone

 

But on the bus ride home that didn't mean a thing

Harassed by the thugs on the corners they would hang

I got banged on I got beat down

Carrying a golf club walking up the street now

They respect me they call me crazy

At least I'm not gettin' punked out on the daily

And when I look back I wouldn't change a thing at all

Where do you think

I found the strength to be speakin' to y'all

I'll take everything in this life

(Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies)

 

I'll join everyone when I die

(From the old and the wise to the young that stay fly)

 

God is love then hatin' is Satan

'Cause then tight patients got me sitin' here waitin'

On the day when it's okay to love

When black men won't pretend that they are thugs

When teachers and doctors are treated like celebrities

 

You could get a job even if you got a felony

Check out my melody let's live in harmony

We're in this together no man has economy

No man is an island immune to the violence

This rap race is no place to raise a child in

What's wrong with smilin'

What's wrong with peace

What's wrong with squashin' beef

Before they label you deceased

 

Swallow your pride before your choke on your issues

I know you got family and folks that'll miss you

So don't misuse this gift you've been given

This life is but a dream you are blessed to be livin'

I'll take everything in this life

(Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies)

I'll join everyone when I die

(From the old and the wise to the young that stay fly)

 

And basically man

I'm just a dude that tries to do right

You know I try to make my

My tomorrows better than my yesterdays

 

Without without hurtin' anyone else in the process

'Cause if you leave the world a better place

Then it was when you got here then we all win

Now there's birth

And there's death but the space in between us

Where the journey takes place and you give it all meanin'

It's waitin' on us all there's no need to pretend

No feedom in the feelin' where you're fearin' the end

All good things come to it walk don't run to it

Times you want to end it yourself don't do it

Be original be different

Be the one to stand up and shock this system

I'll take everything in this life

(Your hopes and your dreams and your hate and your lies)

 

I'll join everyone when I die

(From the old and the wise to the young that stay fly)

I'll take everything in this life

I'll join everyone 'cause all men die
